WEEKEND THESIS UNDERTAKING
16.-18.3. Kortepohja Student Village
Weekend Thesis Undertaking (WTU for short) is a weekend dedicated to writing your thesis. Why? Because peer pressure works! So take your laptop with you, bring yourself to Kortepohja, meet others who are also battling with their Master’s or Bachelor’s thesis, set a goal for the weekend and share it with the others. Then just get to work! On Sunday we will check how these goals were accomplished.
